Winemaker, Mike Mainguy, produces a selection of wines and styles to suit all tastes.
This is a medium bodied juicy red that is wonderful served slightly chilled. Fresh raspberry and tree-fruit notes on the nose. The palate is fruit forward, dryish with lots of red berry flavours, cocoa and subtle floral notes. This unoaked and primary fruit driven red with pairs well with barbeque, grilled meats, tomato-based pastas and charcuterie.
Made from 100% Nova Scotia grown grapes from Luckett Estate as well as Cadrain Vineyards (Aylesford). Partial whole berry and crushed Leon Millot, gently pressed and co-fermented with a component of L’Acadie Blanc and Riesling. Individual components add strong fruit forward aromatics, with a rounded low tannin texture and a balanced mouthfeel. All stainless-steel fermentation for pure fruit expression.
